I know it is still early but I thought we could get ahead start on thinking about what we are going to eat tomorrow. I know a few of us (myself included) have been slipping the last few days - so - let's make this a 'nearly perfect week.'

I still don't know what I want to eat, I just wanted to start thinking about it!

B - 2 pieces of whole grain toast, natural peanut butter

S - Horizons organic fat free plain yogurt, 1.5 cups strawberries

L - big salad with chicken, carrots, orange pepper strips, grape tomatoes, dressing on the side

S - cherries

S - cut up veggies - carrots, grape tomatoes, yellow pepper strips (store was out of sugar snap peas )

S - tall non fat sugar free latte Had 2 cookies from Japan, 1 strawberry, 1 die-sized piece of cheese

D - staying late to do training. I have some great leftover home made chickpea, zucchini, leek, tomato soup in the freezer. I'm going to bring that and eat it with 2 pieces of whole grain bread.

Part of my planning was done by DS who decided to go golfing with a friend instead of eating his chicken leg!
So into my kitbag for work will go a chicken leg, salad, carrots, zucchini and cottage cheese.
Breakfast will be oats and egg whites.
Supper should be salmon and ... um ... probably a hot vegetable and salad.

At least 15 minutes of cardio and at least 15 minutes of shoulders and abs.

Glory - your meals always look yum! :)

B - 1.5 cups nonfat milk, 3/4 cup Frosted Flakes

S - Nature Valley Oats n' Honey granola bars (2/pack)

L - 1/4 cup brown rice + roasted veggies
1 8 oz container plain nonfat Dannon yogurt

D - Salad wraps (about 3 whatever makes me full)

S - Banana, another yogurt if necessary.

I'm thinking this will be it, but sometimes I just feel like something different

B-oatmeal w/ raisins&walnuts
S-pria bar (if I'm hungry)
L-tabouli, hummus on triscuits, peach
S-strawberries and blueberries
D-steamed fish, carrots, zucchini, peas
S-popcorn, 1 Lindor ball

07-11-2006, 12:24 AM
Okay here I am - ready now!

B- piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter (might have oatmeal instead), banana, vanilla yogurt
S- coffee with some flavoured cream
L- tuna sandwitch (mayo, tuna, lettuce, white bread), grapes
D- not sure

I was at costco and they were sampling tuna, Solid White Albacore and it was SOOOO good, way better then the chunks! So I bought some of that and its a litte less calories.

Probably going to skip exercise again tomorrow, but I will see what time I get to bed. I think my body still needs a bit of a break - it feels okay but I know I need it. I will drink 6 liters of water tho tomorrow.

So dinner tomorrow will be pasta (half white, half whole wheat), lean ground beef, and a creamy sauce. I might have a salad with it too.

I really know I need to get up in the morning and exercise, especially if I want to see the scale drop this week but I really don't feel like it :( Moving and all that is hard work!

07-11-2006, 11:11 AM
mmmm Rosario your day sounds yummy!

07-11-2006, 12:26 PM
Ended up high in calories last night, I'm sure, since I had a restaurant quesedilla for dinner (although it seemed to have mostly veggies and chicken and not much cheese, which may be helpful). Today should be along the lines of:

smoothie (banana, 1T natural pb, ice, skim milk)
salad (spinach, strawberries, chicken, cabbage, broccoli, almonds, and reduced-calorie dressing)
pasta (not white, but I don't think it's whole-wheat, either--some sort of healthier version :dizzy: ) w/low-fat mozzarella, turkey sausage, and no-salt-added tomato saucePlus at least 3 liters of water (had 4 yesterday and am already done with #2 for today, and it's not even lunch yet!) and a hike up the 4 flights of stairs to my apartment.

jillybean720 - I was just wondering about the smoothie you have for breakfast - it sounds yummy, does it keep you full?

I usually have my smoothie at aroun 5:30-6am. Sometimes I am fine all the way until lunch (11:30-noonish), and sometimes I have a packet of reduced-sugar instant oatmeal around 9:30-10am. So yeah, personally, it holds me over very well, considering I ALWAYS reach for the oatmeal before lunch when I just have cereal and fruit for breakfast :dizzy:

07-11-2006, 01:29 PM
Thanks Jill! I am going to try one of those tomorrow morning for breakfast! I always like a change, and I love my reduced-sugar instant oatmeal as well! haha

I may get some walking in!! Woohoo me! DH just called and he is working on something in his shop at his moms house. I am not sure how long I will be able to walk with my hurt foot but I will give it a try!

I need to get some exercise in, but I am enjoying relaxing. I didnt get much relaxing done last night, I was running around shopping and moving my fish :(
